Japanese Aircraft Online Model Contest 012 - MIRO HEROLD #1

Hello,
this is my first input.
Nakajima B6N2 "Jill" from aircraft carrier Taiho June 1944 - Fujimi 1/72.
Decals are from Print Scale.
It is a part of my project the Battle in the Philippine Sea.

A really very nice effort in this scale with a difficult kit. At close up, I can see some issues with the wing leading edges but other than that nothing major. And since everybody's incisting on decimals...8.5 from me.

I like it. Very nice effort for a 72 scale kit. Anytime a 72 scale model looks almost as good and detailed as a 48 scale or higher I vote it up. I would like to see more weathering, it looks too "factory fresh", but that is a matter of taste and some carry it too far IMO. I will give a 9.

Nice job on the small scale, but some details could have been improved easily. A little bit of wear would have been welcome as the life of a IJN torpedo bomber was rather short in 44. 8.

Nice job on a small scale kit. Overall the model has a pleasing appearance. I noted some issues with the wing leading edges, the spinner does not seem to be seated properly in the first photo, and the paint seems to have an orange peel look to it in some of the photos. I give it 7.

Great effort in 1/72! There are some small issues as some have noted, but overall, a nice looking model. 8

Some small issues as already noted but good overall finish. The masking and paintjob of the canopy must have been a demanding job. A little more wear and variation in the green color would have been nice.
For me 8

Beautiful airplane. Everyone who works with the 1:72 scale has my deep admiration. I don't have the right hands for that.
Good work! 8.5 points.

A winning example of a rarely seen aircraft… A fine and historically accurate rendition

A very solid 8 for me
